I was introduced to Chess in the distant year of 1986, at the age of 8 years. It was love at first sight! Since then, for lack of encouragement from my parents, I stopped practicing it three times, the last time was for more than 10 years. I returned in 2014, meeting my friend and Cuban CM. In 2015, I found this site dedicated to this beautiful Art and since then I have not stopped. I made friends here too! Chess.com is the best platform for playing, learning and making friends in Chess. But since everything in life is not flowers, there are, unfortunately, the cheaters in the game - and I confess, this has prevented me from playing more games and improving my rating.
